It's been many years since I've seen Butch. Our children were the same ages and played together. Butch and Diane were good friends.
I remember when I was little our families got together on Saturday nights a lot. I remember Uncle Butch playing the guitar and singing. I haven’t seen him for years. I will miss you uncle Butch!!
